Awesome staff

The ranger that works the course is an awesome dude, the rest of the staff is great as well, course conditions were good considering the heat we’ve had, greens are still in good shape. Thanks for another good round. I’ll be back soon.

Great staff, great course.

Well kept, some challenging holes, some pretty straight-forward, great to learn/improve on. Their ranger, especially when we played was an awesome guy, helped move us and a single that was playing through a slower group very efficiently. Overall for my second visit, all I have to say is I will be back with my also very happy friends.

Great Golf Course at a Great Value

Went to Briar Ridge Golf Course on September 12th and played for the first time with a friend. While on hole #13 I set up another tee time to play on the 13th. All of the staff is very friendly and the Course is challenging but fair, all the tee boxes were very nice and greens upkeep very well. I would recommend this course to anyone and would go back here time and time again

Excellent coarse with friendly staff

Low to high handicap friendly coarse kept very well. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable and make you feel like you are playing at your home coarse even if you are just visiting.. Excellent drainage, so ,by far driest coarse even during wet times. Greens and fairways well kept and a lot of wild life for a relaxing feel. Would definitely recommend this coarse to anyone looking for a good round.

Briar Ridge review

The course was ok to play, pretty challenging. A little attitude when we first entered. since I booked online for cheaper price, I felt like we were treated differently. First time there, don't know if i'll be back, and I have a free round though NBC (10.00 for the cart really?). I guess unless you golf there frequently, you get treated like a scrub. I golf EVERYDAY, so I look for the best prices, sorry Briar Ridge if this offends you. I'll spend 10.00 daily to golf 9 everyday, but 20.00 for twilight i'll only go once or twice a week. which means i'll spend more if the price was lower per outing, then if the price is high.

Older well kept course

Course is older, but has a lot of character. Front nine offers tighter landing areas, in a wooded setting, whereas the back is more open and forgiving. Great value. Last 4 or 5 holes was pretty slow, as we waited on the foursome ahead of us on every shot, and they weren't about to ley us play though. :-(. Glad we played it, but likely wont make the 45 minute trip back again.

Not Impressed

Made a tee time through GolfNow to get there and find out they have an outing. Threw us ahead of the outing but then had them go off front and back nine. So after 3 holes we were stuck in the middle of the outing. Then they sent rangers out and we were hurried at 4 different holes because of slow play (which was obviously caused by the scramble, not us). Pretty disappointed with the whole day.

Sub par

The course, itself was fine. The golf etiqutte was awful, there was people with gym shorts and T-shirt’s. The person in the clubhouse was not very friendly and wasn’t at the desk when we entered. Don’t know if I’ll be returning
